Safer Local Streets

The McGowan Labor Government will recruit an additional 800 sworn police officers in a massive boost to frontline police as part of our continued commitment to community safety across Western Australia.

This comes on top of the 300 additional officers already recruited and is the biggest single injection of police officer numbers in decades.

Putting more police on the streets and boosting funding for frontline operations means a stronger police presence on local streets, safer local roads and better police response times.
